The importance of conserving soil productivity and protecting the quality of both soil and water is becoming clear to more people than ever before. This book provides an in-depth view of advances in soil and water conservation in the United States.

    Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. It is operated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and provides access to the largest natural resource information system in the world. Soil conservation is the prevention of loss of the top most layer of the soil from erosion or prevention of reduced fertility caused by over usage, acidification, salinization or other chemical soil contamination. Slash-and-burn and other unsustainable methods of subsistence farming are practiced in some lesser developed areas.

The nationwide trend of declining soil erosion rates on cropland was mirrored in declining soil erosion in each of the 10 farm production regions. The Appalachian region experienced the greatest decline in water erosion rates, from tons per acre per year in to tons per acre per year in a.

Soil erosion has been considered as the primary cause of soil degradation because soil erosion leads to the loss of topsoil and soil organic matter, which are essential for the growing of plants. Quantification of soil loss is a significant issue for soil and water conservation practitioners and policy makers.

It is an empirical technology that has been applied around the world to estimate soil erosion by raindrop impact and surface runoff. The development of the USLE was the culmination of decades of soil erosion experimentation conducted by university faculty and federal scientists across the United States.

Four themes are emphasized: delineating and estimating the magnitude of soil erosion, quantifying erosion and sedimentation impacts on land productivity, establishing quantitative values for erosion-causing parameters, and implementing global and regional soil and water conservation programs.

Soil Conservation. Soil conservation is an important part of sustainable agriculture and food production, since it entails keeping soil from becoming a pollutant in the surface waters, and its ability to sieve and filter pollutants that would otherwise end up in drinking water.

These have long been the mainstay for students of soil erosion and conservation.
